At the Howard School, we have developed a curriculum which meets all national requirements and is relevant, progressive, builds character and offers unique learning experiences.

Upper Key Stage Two Curriculum

As the children move further up the school, the subject areas of the National Curriculum become more distinct.  Religious education and worship in assemblies are an integral part of the children’s experience. Our core subjects include: Mathematics, English, Science, RE, Computing and PE.

We also teach a rich curriculum incorporating History, Geography, Art and Design, Languages, Music and Personal, Health & Social Education (PHSE).  Teachers plan topics of work for each year group from the national curriculum.  We supplement our provision each term with events to broader experiences.

We like to use many different environments in addition to that of the classroom and so we work outside in the school grounds, in the local environments of Ackworth and also beyond the boundaries of Pontefract and Wakefield.
